FOLKSY Theatre are heading back to the Borders, bringing the classic story of The Little Match Girl to life in this brand new, musical adaptation.

An upbeat, festive adaptation of the Christmas Classic. The Little Match Girl wanders the street on Christmas Eve, trying to sell her match sticks. Everyone is busy celebrating with fires, Christmas trees and delicious food but outside the girl is cold, sad and alone, that is until she lights one of her matches to keep warm and visions come to life before her very eyes!

Join the Little Match Girl on a magical journey, filled with live music, puppetry and multimedia. This is a family Christmas show not to be missed!

This production uses a mix of live performers, puppetry, live music and multimedia and brings and happy twist to this much-loved text. With high-energy performances, audience interaction and out right silliness, Folksy’s The Little Match Girl will be a theatre experience to be remembered.

Tom Hardwicke - Director said: ‘We had a lot of fun adapting this beautiful tale. It was important to us that we kept the message and morals of the story, whilst making it happier and more uplifting. It has been a joy to bring it to life, with our talented actor/musicians. It’s a really fun, family show and we’re delighted to be back working with Live Borders this Christmas’
